The "green route" was taken on August 15th. Originally intending to head south to Yorktown we were beaten back by the traffic and ultimately ended up in Culpeper, VA at the Frost Cafe for a late lunch. The summer time traffic around here, especially that headed south or east (that is, towards the beaches) has become legendarily horrible. It's enough to make a person consider moving away.
On August 22nd, we rode the "red route." An approximate 200-mile ride to New Market, VA to eat lunch at the Southern Kitchen, apparently famous for its peanut soup (which, to me, doesn't sound that appealing).
Finally, on the 29th, we rode the "blue route" to Paw Paw, WV. The whole trip was a bit under 250 miles on one of the nicest weather days ever, much less a day in August.
Below are some photos in no particular order. On one of the trips, we ran into Cooter from the old Dukes of Hazzard TV show. He has a place near Sperryville.
The last photo show 9999 miles on the odometer...I pulled off the road to snap a photo.
